How To Ham Up Your Table
(NAPSA) - Culinary experts say serving up a great ham dinner is something anyone can do with confidence, especially when help is only a phone call away.
The Kentucky Legend Ham Hotline is open through April 30 and it can help anyone select, prepare and serve a delectable ham. Ham experts will field calls at (866) 343-5058 from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Eastern Time, Monday-Friday.
"Preparing the perfect ham is really quite easy no matter what your skill level in the kitchen," said Diane Morgan, author of more than 14 cookbooks, including several on entertaining. "Best of all, the ham hotline is there to back you up if you have any questions or find you do need a little help."
The hotline is run by the experts at Kentucky Legend Hams, where producing great hams is done the traditional way-by hand, from a recipe passed down through generations over the past 100 years. The hams are hand stuffed, hand selected and hand trimmed, then slow cooked in their own natural juices and double smoked for the legendary taste.
Kentucky Legend Hams are produced by Specialty Foods Group (SFG), a leading U.S. producer and marketer of a wide variety of premium branded and private-label processed meat products. SFG products are available through a wide range of national and regional outlets.
